London Bridge

London Bridge is among the capital's busiest stations and its £1 billion redevelopment project - which began in 2013 _ entered its final phase after eight days of major engineering work over the August bank holiday weekend.

The final section of the new concourse will open in January 2018 following further engineering work at Christmas and New Year with completion of platforms 1-5.

New retailers are due to be announced soon for spaces around and in the station.

In the surrounding area, Science Gallery London will open in 2018 to connect art, science and health in a free-to-visit space expected to draw some 300,000 visitors a year.

The Bridge, London's first large new theatre for 80 years, opens this autumn just west of London Bridge with productions of Young Marx, Julius Caesar and Nightfall.

The 900-seat auditorium is designed to be adaptable to the needs of a variety of styles of theatre.

Southwark Playhouse, which moved to nearby Newington Causeway because of work at London Bridge, will move back to its original home at the station.
